+mhfares Posted January 31, 2005 Share Posted January 31, 2005 I use a simple yellow eTrex for my outdoor activity and so make no use of mapping. However, I thought you might want to know that there exist some fairly elaborate digital maps showing many detailed attributes of the terrains like contours for elevations, names of valleys, wells, gas stations, roads, tracks ..etc. They are made by Saudi desert fans (probably by scanning images and a lot of data gathering) .. They are updated frequently and are available on memory cards for GPS receivers with mapping capability. I think they are also in English and so it might be useful for some of those who read this post. The link below shows comparison between them and those of the Garmin local agent: http://www.mekshat.com/vb/showthread.php?t...%DE%C7%D1%E4%C9 Quote Link to comment
